Seth_points had a good suggestion about this and i am taking it. I m thinking best fights only, but haven't decided on 8 or 10 yet.

I'm just glad to see Bellator getting more love this go round...they are IMO on the rise and will prob overtake Strikeforce eventually anyway.

IDK, there's some buzz surrounding worries of Bellator's sustainability. They've been doing good things though, so hope for the best, I guess.

could you quote me some sources? I haven't seen anything like that..it would be a shame...if they don't survive its because FSN isn't completely behind them...where I live you can't catch it live at all or actually even in replay form...only on the NBC wrap ups on sat night...which is a shame because I would definitely be all over it if I could.

Robert Joyner did a writeup about it on his blog this past weekend. I'm sure you could google and find it. If you don't know who Robert is, it would probably just resemble a well written blog entry based on speculation...and while there's some truth in that, the guy really knows the number game, especially when it comes to MMA. There's nothing too telling, but it gives you an idea of what uphill battles Bellator is facing as a result starting out a little too fast.

Here's a link to the article by Robert Joyner for those too lazy to Google search.

from bellator 22

-Jose Vega (5-4) vs. Jared Card (11-3)
-David Nixdorf (4-0) vs. Virgil Zwicker (6-2)

Local Feature Fights:
-Tyler Stinson (17-6) vs. Leonardo Pecanha (11-5)
-Rudy Bears (11-5) vs. TBA
-Jared Downing (1-0) vs. Chad Vandenberg (5
